Yup, it's today. I started the thread GMT.
But the French thread was much more fun to try to decifer :-)
The riddle goes: "What's the plural for 'un petit beurre'*?", the reply being the nonsensical word 'des touyoux'. When your interlocutor looks at you all puzzled and asks why, you then say: "Because: 'Un p'tit beurre, des touyoux'."
It works better when you pull this trick on a Frenchman though... :^D

Yeah, I'm sticking to the French thread... It makes me feel seasoned, not old. =)
